There are not enough hours in the day. Or days in the week.
As like most moms, I take on too much and often feel like I'm shortchanging something in favor of something else. People often ask me how I "do it all" and I answer with "not well".
It's my goal to find things that can "kill two birds with one stone" and I recently rediscovered a favorite spot of mine that thought I'd share.
My husband and I are runners and just signed up for a fall half marathon. Now it's a struggle to find time to train without taking time away from each other and the kids.
Enter Riverside Park in Oakmont. This park is the most brilliantly designed park I've ever seen. There is a fenced in playground as well as tennis courts INSIDE a running track. So we can let the kids play while we get our run in. And my children like tennis as well, so they can even play tennis while we run. There's a beautiful view of the river (again, the playground is fenced in, so there's less chance of them wandering off to see the river) along with picnic pavilions if you want to bring lunch.
I think we'll be spending a lot of time there this fall.
Now I"m in search of other great multitasking places where the kids can have fun where I can cross things off my list as well (like my undying love for the Eagles Nest. I let the kids play while I get the shopping done as well as do my grading over a cup of coffee in the cafe)
What places have you discovered to multitask?
